In this paper, we present a modern platform for running Virtualized Network Functions based on the Click Modular Router. The proposed platform leverages of current technologies - such as DPDK, OSv, and REST Web Services - to fulfill the ETSI requirements for Network Functions Virtualization. The obtained results show the feasibility of the platform to consolidate disparate network functions, while demonstrating flexibility from a management point-of-view.
